This is an opportunity for the whole church to be involved, there is something you can do and I would like to encourage you all to think about this. PRAY! Bring along someone you know. Chat to people.  Help with coffee/teas, washing up, even drying a few cups. A really important thing is to encourage and support everyone by your presence. If you can help in any way, please contact Trish Jackson.

Please remember to collect stamps for Slavic Gospel Association funds. There is a collecting jar in the Schoolroom.
